If you have ever been interested in the solo theater artform, this is the book for you. It gives a great overview of the genres recent history and includes great biographical information on the featured artists. I was amazed to find both Moms Mabley and Lord Buckley in the same book. Anyone tackling this artform, or fans of it will benefit from this book.
